LAKE STEVENS, Washington — Saturday night at Skagit Speedway saw Shaylen Raye Motorsports driver Travis Jacobson pick up his second straight win in the #18 Shark Racing Engines powered 410 sprint car. Starting sixth on the field in the main event Jacobson split the fourth and fifth place cars to move to fourth on the first lap.
Picking off cars one by one, Jacobson found his way clear of traffic and set off in pursuit of race leader Eric Fisher. Clicking off laps of 11.6 in traffic Jacobson closed to within a couple car lengths before something went south on Fisher’s car bringing out the yellow flag. On the restart and for the rest of the 25-lap main event it was all Jacobson for the win.
Trackside during the trophy presentation Travis said, “this win is dedicated to Craig and Suzy of Performance R/C and all their family and loved ones.” This in response to the passing of longtime team sponsor and friend Craig Cherryholmes earlier in the week. “I am so fortunate to drive for this team. They give me great race cars every week and make me look so good. I wish Eric’s car had stayed running cause we were closing and getting ready to make it one heck of a battle for the lead. The track was great and the team had that car perfect.”
This week Shaylen Rae Motorsports is busting out the 360 Sprint in addition to the 410 and will see double duty at Skagit Speedway. Team owner Mike Anderson said, “We need to see a Shark in victory lane in the 360 division!”
